Since the start of April, India has added lakhs of the latest COVID-19 cases to its count. Within the last period, the number of individuals who are tested positive for COVID was greater than the sum of March and February put together.
Today, truth is incredibly different. The patients are infecting one another – which is making the pandemic spread exponentially.
Factors that are liable for this could be
– The duration that an individual is contagious after getting infected.
-The frequency of contact
-The probability of infection whenever a Covid positive person meets a vulnerable person.
Climbing down from our current COVID-19 peak will mean all those factors have to fall. Physical distancing through “DO GAZ KI DOORI”, Night Curfews and Shutdowns can reduce the frequency of contact. Contact tracing, testing and isolating, and containment zones help the Covid-infected complete their contagious periods with minimum interaction. Masks and handwashing and other practices of ventilation reduce the probability of transmission upon contact.
If the last year has prepared us anything, it’s this – there’s no solution to end this pandemic other than precautions. There are ebbs and gushes. There are challenges on every front: the battle to interrupt the chain of transmission; the race against the clock to prevent geographic spreads; the fight to supervise hospitalizations and cure patients, and therefore the mega war to preclude deaths. Each of those battles is troublesome – but in our current situation, we are having to fight all simultaneously.
Like the Spanish flu, the second explosion of the pandemic has been more devastating than the primary. it’s also perceived to show a discrepancy from last year’s surge in several ways,
The rate of infection is far on top of before. Due to this, an alarming increase in new cases is often seen.
Secondly, the share of asymptomatic and mildly symptomatic cases is far beyond before. This suggests that more people are spreading the disease without even being responsive to it. The report warns that fatality numbers and therefore the number of severe cases are expected to surge with the spike.
The only thanks to curbing this example is to require precautions and follow the rules.
PRACTICE SOCIAL DISTANCING
Since person-to-person contact is that the main source of transmission, social distancing could be a key thanks to mitigating the spread. Maintain a distance of 6 feet from other public places. This distance will facilitate your avoid direct contact with respiratory droplets generated by coughing or sneezing.
WASH YOUR HANDS
Practising good hygiene is a very important habit that helps prevent the spread of COVID-19.
WEAR A MASK
Face masks have become essential accessories in protecting yourself et al. from contracting COVID-19.
RESTRICT YOUR TRAVELS
If you need to travel, take safety measures, consider your mode of transportation, and stay awake to this point on the restrictions that are in site at your destination. Adhering to your state’s quarantine rules after travelling will help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
WATCH FOR SYMPTOMS
The symptoms of infection for the coronavirus are often the same as those of other respiratory infections, like Symptoms may include:
Fever or chills
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Muscle or body aches
New loss of taste or smell
Congestion or runny nose
Nausea or vomiting
We heard the phrase “Every Problem have Solutions”, right?
This crisis too has the solutions!
Without panicking, let’s follow all the COVID-19 Protocols & kindly not break the curfew.
A serious problem also showed up!
There’s a shortage of hospital beds. Medicines, oxygen etc in hospitals.
We request people having mild COVID to stay isolated in their homes and do not reserve hospital beds unnecessarily if the case is not severe.
Together we can and we will.
